Catasauqua Mayor Barbara Schlegel presents a $400 check to Police Chief Douglas Kish and K-9 Officer John Wiseman during the June 3 meeting of borough council. The funds came from the sale of hot dogs and vendor spaces at a community yard sale held May 18 at Fireman’s Field. The yard sales are held twice a year, and all proceeds benefit the borough’s K-9 care fund.

Nice day nets great receipts for K-9 unit fundraiser
Every year in May, Catasauqua Mayor Barbara Schlegel holds a yard sale to benefit the borough’s K-9 unit. This year, the event was held May 18.
“The weather was perfect,” she said, “and we had about 26 vendors at Fireman’s Field.”
And vendors were moving product in steady fashion.
Catasauqua resident Yasmine Ramos had everything marked at a dollar, including size 4 boys’ clothes.
“We have big sizes for boys, too,” she said.
Marianne Brodman said she has been coming to all the K-9 events for years.
“It’s been worthwhile to come here. Great to see all these people shopping,” she said.
Gene Schlegel had nice maple bedroom dressers up for grabs, along with a selection of household and kitchen products.
